‘A man for others’: Judge Kavanaugh spends part of Wednesday serving the poor


Amidst the chaos of the confirmation fight, Kavanaugh took a moment to do something incredibly human.

A passerby spotted the new Supreme Court nominee on her way home from work Wednesday night, and sent these pictures to The Daily Caller News Foundation. Kavanaugh was serving meals to the homeless outside Catholic Charities in downtown Washington, less than 48 hours after he was tapped to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy.

According to his D.C. Circuit biography, the judge is a volunteer with the St. Maria’s Meals program, which serves hot dinners to the capital’s poor. During his acceptance remarks on Monday night, the judge mentioned that his Jesuit high school education taught him to be “a man for others.”

Another volunteer noted: 

I was there and can confirm. Also, this was no mere post-nomination photo op. Judge signed up a while back to serve on this date (as he has on several prior occasions), and chose to keep the commitment.
